Everyone is shopping online, for everything! Clothes, shoes, baby goods & foods.
I work in retail & I really should be doing the whole ‘supporting the economy’ but when prices are high for everything we are all trying to save a few bucks.
I adore shopping online for products that cannot be purchased in Australia or if they can be purchased here they are ridiculously priced, even taking into account shipping, the middle man & staff wages.
For health products I shop with iHerb or VitaCost. The latter does tend to take way too long to send to Australia which is why I always recommend iHerb.
Today I received my biggest haul of protein & food bars. These are perfect for before or after workouts but also as a quick meal or snack for busy periods.
See my post on Quest Bars, as today I’m enjoying the moorish Luna Bar.
As mentioned I work in retails, this is our busiest time of the year & does mean there’s sometimes no time for lunch breaks or it’s so under the pump that my calorie burn is high.
Today I’m enjoying a Luna Bar Asa quick snack as it’s a busy day an I need some extra energy. We don’t have a fridge at work so it can be hard to sometimes bring fresh foods and I don’t always want to spend money on food court meals that tend to be highly processed and high in salts and fats.
Luna Bars contain 70% organic ingredients and are high in calcium, folic acid, antioxidants A, C & E and 9 grams of fibre. They’re great as a treat and not to have daily as they do contain 13 grams of sugar. But calorie-wise they sit at about 180 which is almost on bar with a standard museli bar.
Calcium is important for bone growth and strength and also plays a part in regulating blood pressure. Vitamin D aids the aids the calcium absorption. Folic acid helps in cell development & Irons helps the transfer or oxygen to the muscles.
